I'm perfectly aware that I created the current version.

I also happen to be the only person who i've given permission to do a revamp.

It would have some way to go, but if it looks snappy and people support it along the way, bananas up! ;)

now for some feedback :D

Boarders are pixelated and jagged. [-X This upsets gimil very much. The pen tool always does a better job for boarders, maybe give it a try for lil old me please?

Thats really it for now :P Once you have a fuller image ready to go well see about getting this into the main foundry where a full revamp should start out ;)

Well sine you already started i would like to suggest a few things.

I've always like the red part continent in the old Ancient Greece and chance that you could make the same continent red here to and move the brown colours (Which looks great to not so great the continent with those odd flowers?)

The borders look a lot nicer now. I would like to have the same colors on the same continents like on the old map, but no graphics or flowers over top of them. The water is too bright I think. Lookin' better. :)

I think the original looks nice, but the revamp is nice too. For the first draft I think it's got a lot of potential to be a good improvement.

Peloponesos and Sterea Ellada look a little too saturated compared to the other continents, though that could be to do with the way they filter with the background. I think I prefer with the backgrounds on the territories, breaks up the colour blocks a bit and fits well with the theme. Also, I'm liking those dancing Indians - nice touch.

Heres the latest version. Personally I don't think the red looks right at all. I also loved the red on the old version, but this one is totally different. I think i'm going to stick with the brown.

Ok, I like the way the graphics look now in the continents. But the font is bad, the legend is bad, the water is ok (maybe have it so there is no glow around the land), and the Indians are still bad.

If you complain about the damn minotaurs one more time i'm going to stop reading your posts all together. I honestly appreciate your input, but when I say multiple times "i'm going to keep them for now," move on.

Which font do you guys like better? The one for Asia Minor's territories or the ones for Peloponnesos?

I personally love the Asia Minor font.

Are you adding a route between Krete and Carpethos?

Is the border between Lesbos/Xios going to stay?

Are you switching Rhodos' bonus?

The one thing I could see as a problem (But a very slight problem) would be that island of the Kyklades to the far east that connects to Rhodos. Could that be moved in closer, more towards the name?

Sorry to throw so much stuff out there at once.
